A Tramp Wlio Wnrkril the "Orutlcninn"
Racket but Wrnrlril of It.
Tlio city marshal of n small town in Indi
ana having informed nio that he hail n "bail
expositor" in the town lockup, ami that I
could st-o him if 1 so ilw.iri.il. it was only nat
ural that curiosity khould be arouseil. I uent
over to (hid n clean shaven, respootal)Ie look
ing man in broadcloth, and when we had been
left alone, on pretense that lie "wanted to
consult legal authority," he offered me a
cigar, crossed his legs, and complacently re
marked: "Well, the bottom has dropiwd cut at last,
and I'm durned glad of it. I hain't felt a bit
happy for the last three months. Look at
mol D'ye 'spose a decent tramp would rec
ognize or have anything to do with iiib
togged out in this fashion? Regular broad
cloth, this suit K and I've got on a regular
undershirt, same as governors wear, and reg
ular socks and linen collars. Is it any won
der 1 hain't had a good night's sleep in long
weeks, anil that my l,vi-r K out of order and
my system running ilimuf"
"You ore not what ymi seenu" I observed
by way of encouragement.
"You'vo hit the hull's eye. old man I Ray,
it's too funny for anything when 1 think it
over. Sometimes I've laughed till my sides
ached, and then again I've bin so lonesome
that it seelned as if I must fly."
"Go on with the tale.''
Ho noted the tune by a new silver watch,
settled himself back on thu bench, and be
gan: "Down hero about threo miles lives an old
maid nigh onto 60 years old. She owns thu
farm, anil a man cousin of her's works it.
One night hist spring I struck the place for a
cold supper, and the door was hardly oeii
before Martha Hung her arms about my neck
and kissed and hugged until Jim, the cousin,
had to pull her oil-."
"Mistaken identity," I remarked.
"Exactly. Seems that they had an Uncle
Thomas oil' somewhere, and that ho was sup
posed to be rich and eccentric, and that a
fortune teller had told 'em ho would como
along in disguise. They tumbled to mo for
the old eccentric, and it "wasn't over two
toots of the whistle before I was onto the
racket. They didn't ask me any hard ques
tions, but stuHed me full of good things,
piled me into a feather lied, kissed mo good
night, and that was thu beginning of a down
ward career hich has lauded mo where 1
am. Iist night, when 1 struck this jail, I
began to feel at homo for the first timo ill
twelve weeks. If I only had my old duds
my happiness would bo complete."
"Did it take them three months to find
that you were not their Uncle Thomas."
"It did. They thought I was deceiving
them nbout my riches, and testing them to
see if they were worthy. They bought mo
this watch, clothes, cane, and a lot of other
stuir, and I wits fed on the fat of the land.
Gained thirty-to solid pounds to prove it.
I used to long to get back into the old duds,
and to sleep under a straw stack and to steal
apples and encounter bulldogs but I had to
play my part. I knew that I had a soft
thing, and prudence warned me to hang on
"How did they discover your identity?"
"Well, sin-uent oir to a neighlior's, and
Jim was working in a back lot. Along came
threo of the boys, and 1 was so glad to seo
'em that I hugged each one in my aims and
then invited 'em into the house. They had
eaten and drunk their fill and gone before I
heard anything drop. I told 'em who I was
and what a snap I had, and I'll bo hanged if
Jim, who had como up for water, didn't hear
it all. Ho posted right oil" to town, got the
ofllcers, and hero I uiu. I want you to do uie
a favor." !
"They'll hev to turn ino loose, for I hain't
broken no law. 1 want to send theso clothes
and this watch back to Martha and Jim, and I
want you to get mo something moro in keep
ing with my station something an old tramp
will feel at home in. I'vo been guilty of de
ception, but I really couldn't help myself. !
It's the first time I ever put on clean shirts
once a unshed my face once a day, and
tried to sleep respectably, unit 1 promise you
it shan't happen again. It's human to err,
I arranged at the hotel for some old clothes
and carried them over, and as ho untied tho
bundle "Uncle Thomas" said:
"Most too respectable, but I'll doctor 'em a
little. A thousand thanks to you. By iiis
time to-morrow I'll be ten miles away, dodg
ing tho dog at the gato and working the back
door for cold vittles. Won't it seem good!
Won't I roll up into a ball and have a solid
old snoozo in somo fence corner to-morrow
night! Thanks, again. Hut for your disin
terested kindness I might have been com
pelled to go out of hero all dressed up, and
under false pretenses, and it would have
taken me a mouth to convince the boys that
1 was born to tho purfesh, and loved it for
itself alone." Now York Sun.

"Down with tho check rein!"
J Such is tho war cry chosen by a gentle
man of Scandinavian extraction whose
tiaitio la C W IVtersen On Sundays,
and on week days, too, ho may bo seen
nt various street corners talking to cotich
men, teamsters nnd owners of horses lie
holds nn oil painting in his hands and
shows it to the people he addresses as an
illustration of his arguments Tho plcturo
represents n horso. n swan and a man. all
checked tip high, nnd bears tho following
"When under high pressure of low prido
try the check rein on yourself "
Mr. Petersen is laughed ut and jeered
at by tho peoplo ho addresses Ilo is often
taken for a crank and told roughly to
mind his own business, but with . tho
obstinacy and persoveranco of Peter tho
Hermit, ho goes on pleaching a crusado
against tho check rein. He Is ouo of thoso
characters who cannot bo discouraged by
obstacles, nnd who, having onco taken up
an idea, will follow it to tho end.
"Iaugh at me, tako mo for i fool," Mr.
Petersen says, "but 1 will stick to mv
business, nnd shall denounco tho cheek
rein whenever there, is n chauco."
Mr. Peterson is not a member of tho
Ilumnuo society. Ho is no professional
friend of animals. In fact, ho minds his
own business every workday in tho week.
But as soon ns ho feels himself at liberty
to bpuro an hour or two ho takes his pic
ture nnd goes out on tho street to carry
on his eccentric propaganda. Ho is a
friend of the horses, and ho buffers when
ho bees them suffer
ui:oAni)i.i:ss ok comkoiit.
"Fnshion is tho curso of this ago," said
Mr. Petersen; "peoplo will fotlow it re
gardless of comfort. They will put
mountains on their backs and call it tho
bustlo. They will torturo themselves in
order to comply with certain forms de
clared to bo tlio fashion. When people
torturo themselves I do not caro. lx't
them suffer, t hey ought to know better,
I then think to myself. But when 1 sco
helpless animals tortured for tho sako of
complying with ridiculous demands of
fashion, I get indignant and cannot stand
it. 'Tho horse is ouo of tho most beauti
ful animals, because- of his fino propor
tions and graceful, curved outliucs. Now i

thercV Yon seo tlio laws of naturo vio
lated. You m-o a machine put up on tho
horso in order to do away with tho curved
lino his arched neck forms.'
"That is tho way 1 begin my conversa
tion with tho peoplo hniidling horses und
using the check rein.
"1 tell them tliat this check rein is not
only disfiguring tlio horso but also injur
ing his health It robs him of comfort, it
makes him nervous, and ho enn't seo
anything, because of being forced to look
upward unto tlio sky. Then I point to
tho swan, and ask tho coachman what
that noblo bird would look liko if u check
rein would be put over her head. Then I
point to tho checked up man, and ask tho
coachman to tell mo how ho would feel if
ho were checked up in a liko manner.
" 'How would you feel, man?' I any.
'The first few minutes you would proba
bly endure this constraint without much
complaint. But then von would begin to
kick. Iu a short timo your neck would i
begin to ache, and your mouth would bo
j-ll . 1 - 1. , , , i- . t. F Itl '
uucu wuu uioou iroi.i uiu ii uiwc-ss uuoi is
to get tlio head down. You would bo
como restless and begin to toss your head
just as your horso is doing it now. How
would you feel if, whilo tho sun were
blinding your eyes, with a burden to draw
or carry, unablo to seo wnero to step, you
wcro w.iipped into a run, into a ditch or
depression in tho rough street pavement?
Would you feel comfortable? That's
why von often see fino horses harnessed
to elegant carriages paw vigorously,
champ tho bit, toss tho head, and turn
tho neck. They want to loosen tho check,
lower tho head, and get a rest.'
HOW THE DlilVUK TAKIIS IT.
"Tho driver biniles or laughs, or stam
mers something Ho thinks 1 am a queer
fellow, und goes on to explain that ho
would not mind loosening the check, but
tho peoplo who employ liim wcro opposed
to it, want more style, and so on.
" 'Well, then,' 1 say, 'call your peoplo's
attention to tho fact that tho horses are
being tortured by tlio check rein. Tell
them that tho horses would bo killed in a
short timo because of tho silly fashion.'
"1 thus go on lecturing. Often tho
drivers and coachmen really follow my
advico and remedy tho thing. But often
tlio peoplo are stubborn and do not caro
to listen to what I say.
"I havo discovered that my painting
helps mo a good deal in my work. I took
it ono Sunday to tho People's church at
McVlcker's. There was a long row of
carriages with lino horses standing in
front of the theutro. Tho horses were
all checked up 1 bhowed tho picturo to
tho coachmen. They laughed and lired
at mo all kinds of silly remarks. Finally
a young couple drove up in a carriage to
tho theatre. Tho horso was restless. I
showed ray picture to tho young gentlo
man and explained to him tlio reason of
tho horse's refctlesMUMs. Tho young gen
tleman thought ho hud n fool from tho
insuno asylum before him. The uni
formed coachmen btood around grinning
and awaiting developments.
"Well. I gave tiiem a practical lesson
right there on thu spot. I unchecked
tho horse, and there ho stood quietly and
comfortably, bhowing no signs of being
unmanageable. Tho chock having been
looseued ilu horso dropped his head. Ilia
neck assumed its natural arched form.
Ho at onco became nn object of admlra
tion for all tlio drivers. Tho young gen
tleman thuuked me for my advice, and
tho lady that was with him thcught that
my picturo was tho best tchemo devised
for tho welfare of horses.
"It Is only a few weeks since I began
to uso my picture, and I find it much
more eloquent than words. Somo timo
in tho near future 1 shall also havo other
pictures copied und painted. I'll show
them a horso in its natural position; a
pair of horses, one checked nnd another
loose; a spun of horwis, easy and grace

checked; and u pair of work heroes with
check reins on Thu pictures will bo

A Story of III- War A brum S. Ilrwllt

A friend ol ; .ivor Hewitt told n re

President l.in. uln at another critical
juni'turi' in tin progress of the war, and
tlio ri'Hirti't iippltiil to the tnnvor for the
particulars ol tlii'ocrurrence. Mr. Hewitt
"Lot nio think n minute. It was in
the winter of 1M11 nnd I WW. just before I
went to lSuroH.'. I was at the tea table
one Sunday night we always luul some
thing of n company, somo twenty or
thirty on such occasions and I was ut
the llwul of the table, when a messenger
brought men telegram from Mr. Lincoln.
It was it long printed roll. I have the
original still somewhere, ami it ran this
I understand that you nro a man that can do
thliiRs that other l ion t-.y can't be clono Oeu.
Ciruut Unt Cairo rem!- to move on Tort Doni'NoiL
IIu has thirty mortar lionibi nnd thirty mortars
croon tho way from Pittsburg toCalro It U now
discovered that there are no mortar beds for the
lack of which the expedition w ill fail, becauso tho
ortlnanco bureau says they can't t,e produced
under uiao months They must be. ut Cairo lu
thirty days. Yours truly. A. Lincoln.
"1 had never seen a mortar bed," said
Mr. Hewitt, "but I had hoard that Gen.
I'odmnu, who was then iu command at
Watortown arsenal, had just completed
the model of one, and that night 1 placed
myself in communication with liim, n
thing 1 had no ditlleulty in doing, being
at tho time president of tlio American
Telegraph company. I was able to get
tho operators to stand at tho machine
whilo 1 talked to Gen. Hodman. In
reply to my question, Gen. Hodman said
that tlio first mortar hod had just been
completed. 1 asked liim if hccouldsond
it down to Now York by tlio Monday
night boat at the latest. This was Sunday
night, you understand, and there was no
way to get it down tlio next day. Ho
said ho could send it if ho received orders
to do so. I told him to consider that ho
.was under orders for tlio time being,
assuring liim that I would sco that ho re
ceived them, which 1 afterward did.
"Ilo sent tho mortar bed, nnd it ar
rived Tuesday morning by the Fall Hivcr
boat. 1 npe:;! Monday running around
to the Novell', Allaire and Cornell's iron
worl.s, to secure draughtsmen to bo
ready Tuesday morning to prepare plans
of the several parts of tho mortar bed on
its arrival. 1 found that it weighed
about a ton and a half, and was com
posed of Ecvcral connected parts. I had
it carted to t'.io Novelty iron works and
taken to pieces, and distributed tlio
pieces around among tho thveo works I
havo mentioned, each agreeing to mako
certain parts and to do all they possibly
could to get them ready in time. Tho
material to mako them was not on hand,
and had to l:e provided. Heing in tho
iron business I knew wlio made tho dif
ferent kinds of material. Tho principal
maker of an essential kind of iron re
fused to chango his rolls to mako what
was wanted, and I telegraphed to Mr.
Lincoln to send an ofiicer to tako posses
sion of his works, which ho did. Tho
work progressed with such success that
nsn. result I was able to send the first mor
tar bed forward in thirteen days from tlio
time i received Mr.Lincoln'stelegrainand
tho whole thirty in twenty-six days. I6ent
a messenger on with each mortar'licd, and
tho car upon which it was loaded was at
tached to tlio express trains with a
printed order of tlio secretary of war
pasted upon it which read ns follows:
This car must not be side tracked under in-na'ty
of death order of too secretary of war.
"Gen. Grant received tlio mortar beds
on time, tlio expedition went forward,
and Uonelson and Henry wero taken. I
paid all tlio expenses of making and for
warding tho mortar beds, amounting to
over $30,000. At the timo paper money
was substantially at par, or nearly bo.
When 1 got my pay in paper money a
year afterward paper money had depre
ciated over a half, and I got it then only
on tho order of Mr. Lincoln, with whom
I then had my fin t interview. When I
wa" presented to him ho said: 'Why, you
aro not such a tremendous fellow alter
all. I thought you must bo 7 feet high
and weigh i!00 pounds.' " New York

An orderly was at onco despatched for
a surgeon, Hismarck and I doing what
wo could mcanwhilo to alloviato tho in
tenso bufferings of tho maimed men,
bringing thom water and adminir.tering
a little brandy, for tho count still had
with him wmu of tlio morning's supply.
When tlio surgeons camo wo transferred
tho wounded to their caro, and making
our way to Hezonville, thero took tho
count's carriage to rejoin tho Ling's head
quarters, which in tho ineantimo had
boon moved to Pont-a-Mousson. Our
route led through tho villago of Gorze,
and hero wo found tho streets so ob
structed with wagoii3 that I feared it
would tako ua tho ivet of tho day to get
through, for the teamsters would not pay
tho slightest heed to the cries of our pos
tilions. Tho count was equal to thocmergency,
however, for, taking a pistol from he
hind his cushion and bidding mo keep
my scat, ho jumped out nnd quickly be
gan to clear the street effectively , order
ing wagons to tho right and left.
Marching in front of tlio carriage and
making way for us till wo wcro well
through tho blockade, ho then resumed
hia beat, remarking: "This 'u not u very
